I've read most of the Bantam reprints and all of the "new" novels by Farmer and Murray. They were a lot of fun. The movie was okay. Personally i thought they could have done better.
I thought the movie had some hints of what a Doc film could be. I'm thinking of Doc chasing the Mayan assassin and the fight on the yacht. I remember hearing that the film was shot "straight" then camped up on orders from the studio.I don't know if that's true or not.I do know that when my wife and I saw RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK for the first time I said, "THAT'S what a Doc Savage movie should have been!"Sigh. Maybe one day.
Yeah, it's too bad they didn't do Doc justice in the movie. I liked the movie for certain touches, but it wasn't really Doc.
